Vacation Scheme

We believe that it is vitally important that our trainees join a firm which 'feels right' for them. We therefore run our Vacation Scheme to provide you with an insight into the way Boodle Hatfield operates and what it would be like for you to work here.

"Our two week Vacation Scheme takes place during July and we accept approximately six applicants each year."

What can I expect?

The Scheme will give you a taster of life at Boodle Hatfield. You will spend time working with partners, fee earners and trainees, which will allow you to gain an understanding of how a legal working environment operates and to see the types of work that we do at Boodle Hatfield.

The scheme is designed to allow you to get the best out of your placement: you will experience work in two separate departments and sit alongside our fee-earners in the office. You may be involved in carrying out research for a client, taken to client meetings or be given a chance to meet counsel.

We also want you to have the chance to really get to know us. We therefore organise some social activities during the two weeks with people in the firm so you can experience the social side of the firm. Typically this will include dinner and drinks with trainees, bowling, softball or a boat tour of London and a lunch with the Partners.

What do you look for?

Applications are welcome from both law and non-law students. The earliest an application can be made for our Vacation Scheme is your penultimate year of your Law degree or final year of your degree for non-law students. We will give precedence to applicants who already have, or are expecting to attain a degree no lower than class 2:1 and to those who have obtained a minimum of AAB at A-Level. We will also give precedence to those wishing to apply for a training contract to start in 2020 with Boodle Hatfield.

The Application Process for the Vacation Scheme

All applications are viewed by the Graduate Recruitment team once the deadline has passed. If your application is shortlisted, we will then conduct a telephone interview with you at a mutually convenient time. We offer approximately 30 interviews each year.

Please refer to the 'How to apply' tab for details on the process for submitting an application.
